The Best Ways to Get Your Bridesmaids Involved in Wedding Planning Skip to main content

Planning a wedding is a big undertaking. From searching for the flowers to dress shopping to figuring out who to invite, the process of planning your wedding can be exhausting! Luckily, you don’t have to go through wedding planning on your own!


Involving all those closest to you is not only helpful, but it’s also a great way to bond with the women closest to you! Everyone will be busy. Between you planning your wedding and them planning things like your bachelorette party, the best way to have fun with your bridesmaids while planning is to plan laid-back events and ways to include them in your wedding. Here are three great ways to include your bridesmaids in your wedding!

Get their input on your wedding registry

Some people feel awkward or even guilty putting together lists of gifts for other people to get them, and if you feel that way, involving your bridesmaids in your registry plans is one of the best ways to overcome that! Creating a list and asking their input, or their takes on what you want, and asking the bridesmaids who have been married before what underrated gifts they received will be a major help in your wedding planning!

Getting help with your DIY wedding favors.

As of recently, Do-It-Yourself Wedding Favors have been a huge trend and a great way to save money, but they can take up hours if you have to do them yourself. Instead of locking yourself in a room for hours to do the wedding favors, invite your bridesmaids to a crafting brunch! Getting the girls together for food, cocktails and crafts will not only save you time on your wedding favors, but it’s also a great bonding time for all your bridesmaids to get together before the wedding.

Make sure to include them in your dress shopping!

This is the quintessential bridesmaid bonding event, but it cannot be understated how helpful inviting your bridesmaids to your wedding dress shopping events can be for getting them to meet each other and helping you all to bond. It can also be helpful hearing second opinions from those you trust on how good you may look in a dress!

Ultimately, your bridesmaids are there to help you in making your wedding the happiest day of your life. They should be happy to help with anything you may need, but you have to remember how busy they’ll be working on your bachelorette party and wedding shower, so don’t forget to show your appreciation for them.
